A van exploded into flames after it rammed into the Australian Christian Lobby office in Canberra, Australia, on Wednesday, according to reports.

Lyle Shelton, the managing director of the organization, tweeted a picture of the charred van, while confirming that staff members were safe. “All staff are safe. I do not know the condition of the driver. Prayers appreciated,” he tweeted, as reported by the Telegraph.

Shelton added: “Shocked this could happen in Australia.”

It’s unclear if the incident was terror-related or a hate crime.

Shelton said that it was a “car bomb driven into the ACL office in Canberra.”
